Our Adult Spine phantom (SE-A01) is a complete ‘average human-sized spine’ consisting of 25 individual vertebrae assembled on top of each other. It is majorly composed of the following components.
- The Cervical vertebrae (C1 to C7)
- The thoracic vertebrae (T1 to T12)
- The lumbar vertebrae (L5 L1A)
It can be further customized by adding an empty spinal canal behind the vertebrae that can be filled with water for ultrasound applications. Another option would be to have a spinal canal filled with a fake spinal cord for medical imaging applications. All our phantoms are compatible with ultrasound, X-ray CT and MRI. Upon request, the spine phantom can be installed/embedded inside a body mimicking tissue such as the thorax and torso for various sonography & radiology applications.
The Phantom is designed based on average human anatomy and it is made out of realistic patented bone material that is suitable for Ultrasound, MRI, and CT applications. It can be used for medical imaging research & treatment planning of various medical procedures. (Upon request, it can be modified for a lumbar or spine lumbar practice phantom with soft tissue-mimicking material surrounding it)
The vertebrae have a realistic three-layered structure and the inner porosity can be adjusted according to the requirement of the particular project.
